so can we all just pause a moment and discuss the absolute adorableness that is Jo's new icon? Her in her little nest ... being all cute and cuddly and great?

And now I need advice

As you both know, I am getting married in 26 days (eight hours ... thirty two minutes ...)

and I have this great ring for Brandon - because, you know, he's the one I'm marrying

it's just plain gold - what we both want

and I want to get something engraved on the inside - something wonderful and fabulous and not hoaky

therein lies the problem. Everything is hoaky! So I've mostly decided to fix that by going with another language

and I have some ideas, but I like too many!

So you two (my loves, my doves, my darling dears) need to advise me. The options are ...
Deus Nos Iunxit (Latin: God Joined Us)
Mizpah (Hebrew, Genesis 31:48-49: God watch between us when we are absent from one another)
I really love this one - Mizpah - it's just so great that this one little word means all of this! Only problem is - now comes the part of the relationship where hopefully we will be no more being absent from one another

Ani L'dodi V'dodi Li (Hebrew, Song of Solomon 2:16: I Am My Beloved's and My Beloved is Mine)
Myn Genyst (Old German: My Heart)
this one is particularly fun because we met in German class ... plus - look at those Ys! FUN!

There are also some english posibilities ... my grandfather had engraved in my grandmother's "My love allways" - see, the misspelling is on purpose. It can be read as "my love always" or as "my love all ways" - I love the pun, and the possibilities, but rather enjoy the mystery of a different language.

so - Help? please?

For me it's no contest but I'm afraid I'm rather biased-- I *really* love Latin. Good meaning, too. "Mizpah" sounds rather Jewish. Yes, yes, I know, it is Jewish, and Hebrew is an important language for our religion, but it could be a little misleading, though beautiful.

"Ani L'dodi V'dodi" sounds like Elvish or something, too cool. The meaning and spelling of "Myn Genyst" is sweet, but I have to be a little bit of a party pooper and mention the eternal problem of German-- speaking it makes you sound PO'd.

You know, this is exactly what I want to do for my wedding rings, when the time comes? Plain gold with something meaningful inside. Mmmm.....Latin.
